Skeld, son of Haplack, is from Norsland. He is tall and blond and has an irrepressibly happy personality. He carries a heavy sword and shield as weaponry. He has been on a few adventures with Tayo Blackman and at least two with Silvan Bregnest.
He joins a company of adventurers to Nezza, but the company is imprisoned. He sends a geeb to Alexander Taylor for help, and Alex rescues the company and Prince Rallian (thus starting Alex’s fourth adventure). Skeld and the company then help Alex and Rallian secure Nezza from the dark wizard Magnus.
